old quote by henry ford who said, "those who think they can and those who think they can't are both right." this is within our power. we have waited, however, a long time to really engage this issue and to get started. and unfortunately, and this is actually a core american value, it goes back to the founding of this country and it goes back to benjamin franklin, one of the leading lights of that time, who said, and every american knows this, "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." a little action now is going to forestall much greater -- the need for much greater action later. and that's exactly the nature of this problem, is that if we delay -- if we wait until we've reached three and four degrees, it's too late. at that point the climate system is locked. it's a massive system. the heat is already in earth's system, it's absorbed in the oceans, it's being absorbed by the ice systems. it's in the atmosphere, there is no magic vacuum cleaner that's going to suddenly pull the co2 out and bring our temperatures back to what we consider normal. so that's why it's so imperat

of their partyinongess, it's not a gerald ford of the old days, someone who could make deals with the other side and is friendly with people from the other party. it's someone who can be the most intense partisan leader. that's also different. and you'd think that this all came from there being issue differences like over the bank of the united states with andrew jackson or the runup to world war two, stay out or go in. franklin park zoo, 1940, nothing remotely close to that in terms of magnitude yet the intensity of the conflict is perhaps greater than most times in history. >> woodruff: yet if you were to sit a partisan republican and a partisan democrat the down here at this desk they would say "we have very different views on taxes, on the role of government." >> i would say they certainly do. but you look out in the historical context, does that rise to the intensity of the conflict over slavery, for instance, in 1860? i don't think so. >> woodruff: mark hetherington, how do you see that? >> maybe so, but hopefully we've come a long way since the 1860s and slavery. >> i hope we have. >> i w

people are poor that's an offense against common decency. it's a little bit like gerry ford succeeding richard nixon. there was a sense of grandeur and -- he comes and lives in a simple apartment, takes a bus where people can come up and talk to him. to me it's encouraging as a catholic. my church is hurting from arrogance. it's indifference to the suffering of children that were abused and the inclination of the leadership to protect the institution rather than the children. and i just, i'm encouraged. >> so when your institutioned under threat, you feel you have a lot of hostility, you feel things are slipping away you've got internal problems, there's a tendency to turn inward and focus on yourself. one of the things he said, he hasn't really seed that much. one of the really nice things he said he would prefer a church that goes out and have accidents in the street than to be self referential and sick. that's exactly the right attitude. when your institution is under assault, you're feeling the weight is on it -- like the republican party don't turn inward go outward and i think hi

the new few years. and, last month, ford announced it will be adding 2,200 salaried employees this year, some of those will be at a cleveland engine plant where today it announced the addition of 450 jobs. >> these jobs, some of them will be people transferring in from other locations where we may have available people but the majority of them will be new hires and they will fall under the new agreement we did in 2007. >> reporter: in recent years, ford had shuttered two plants in that same ohio area. but today's expansion comes as ford moves production of it's eco boost engine from spain back to the u.s. because demand for the engines and fuel efficient cars is booming. >> the auto consumer seems to be very resilient and very strong. we think it has a lot to do with pent up demand given the last several years the car has aged and replacement is necessary. >> reporter: as simple as it sounds, higher demand for cars means there's a need for more people to produce them. >> the year is still early and we've had some good announcements already about jobs being added so i think we'll wait an
